You can create shortcuts just by pointing at the item on the menu and
pressing the key combination you want, e.g CTRL + J. This is way cool and
much better than Windows.

OTOH, the navigation structure doesn't work the same way as Windows. On
Windows you can Press Alt +F to get to the file menus and then press the
first (or underlined letter to work through the sub-menus). On GTK it
appears that you have to press the arrows to move onto a sub-menu. I
prefer the Windows method. I guess that this is a GTK issue rather than a
GnuBg issue.

I think this change might be my fault :o( I reported that opening a new
file while analyising a match caused a crash. The developers (Gary, I
think) inhibited us from doing other stuff while the analysis was going
on. I must say I enjoyed being able to start looking through a match while
GnuBg analysed later moves. I think I'd rather live with being able to
crash the program!
